one little thing can go wrong
Documentary-maker Lynne is consumed by the women she’s making a film about. These women never thought they’d be without a home. But one little thing went wrong and that led to a sequence of unfortunate events. WAY weaves a fictional character with women based on lived experiences. Performed by an acclaimed actor who has worked across Australia and supported by sound and video, this premiere production of WAY is a dynamic, fast-paced journey into homelessness aimed at the brain as well as the heart.
“Sally McKenzie throws herself into her role. Deepest pathos of facing the Mother’s past and terror at the spirit presence of her sister. It is an astonishing performance.” – Michael Brindley, Stage Whispers, Betty, Theatre Works
“It’s a testament to McKenzie’s agility as an actress as she jumps from outpourings of grief to warmer moments on a dime. Her flashbacks are heartbreaking.” – Greta Doell, Theatre Travels, Betty, Theatre Works
